Intel 16-core Tigerton to launch at 2.93GHz

The Inq has some details about Intel's upcoming Tigerton. These are four Clovertown processors on a motherboard with a chipset that uses two Blackfords:
More interestingly, the ones I had in hand last October were running at 2.66GHz, a SKU not to be found at launch. All initial Tigertons will be on a 1066FSB, not the 1333s we saw last year. The launch speeds will be an X7350 running 2.93GHz @ 130W with an 8MB cache, a 50W L7345 at 1.86GHz/50W/8MB, and all the rest are 80W parts. These are the E7340, 2.40/8MB and three with 4MB caches at 2.40, 2.13 and 1.60GHz, the E7330, E7320 and E7310 respectively. There are also two DC parts, both 80W parts, the E7220 and the E7210.

It is heartening to see the Intel naming scheme coalescing in such a logical way, we hear the next numbering scheme, to be introduced a 47 days after Penryn will start numbering at 17 and new models numbers will be picked from a hat containing 2-5 digit prime numbers. If you think about it, it makes much more sense than current schemes.
